Hello! My name is Ms. Sammy and I am the Director here at Building Kidz of Folsom.
Teaching early childhood education is my life’s passion. I started working with children as a nanny at the age of 13, and have worked through the industry ever since. I have been the lead teacher in classrooms of all age groups ranging from 1-5. I also attended and taught theatre at The Actors’ Theatre of Sacramento, making the performing arts very near and dear to my heart. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and Care from Sacramento State University as well as Associate’s Degrees in Social and Behavioral Sciences and Arts and Humanities. My schooling helps to bring Building Kidz’ approach of combining performing arts with stem curriculum together in harmony.
As a teacher, maintaining positive relationships with my students and their families makes any time I get to spend with families my favorite part of the day! These relationships are extremely important to me and something I have carried into my role as Director. I am very active on our school’s Brightwheel app and am always available to communicate with families. I strive to make everyone who enters our doors feel as if this is their second home.
My goal is to create a positive, encouraging, consistent environment where students can learn academics, social emotional skills, confidence, and kindness to prepare them for their future beyond Building Kidz.
